About Melissa Knecht
Philosophy of care
I try to treat every patient as if they are my family member. I will treat you with compassion and let you know I care.
Why I entered medicine
I’ve played softball and been around sports my entire life, so I chose a profession taking care of athletes. My play at Allentown Central Catholic High School helped earn me a scholarship to the University of Notre Dame to pitch, and there I got my pre-med degree. I enjoy helping people to feel better and return to their pre-injury status.
I am involved with charities that help feed the hungry, including local food banks. My daughter and have raised money for the Allentown Rescue Mission.
Since graduation I have coached at Central Catholic, Muhlenberg College and DeSales University, and given private pitching lessons. I now coach my daughter Riley in Salisbury youth organizations.
